Serves 4

3 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
50g butter, melted
300g plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
Oil spray or a little extra butter for cooking
4 slices pineapple
1 cup diced watermelon
Mascarpone and mint (optional) to serve

1 Beat the egg yolks then whisk in the buttermilk and melted butter.

2 Sift the flour, salt and baking soda into the wet ingredients and fold in.

3 Whisk the egg whites until peaks form, then fold into the mixture.

4 Heat a fry pan and lightly grease. Also heat a second pan for the pineapple or use a grill. When hot, add the pineapple and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Cook the pancakes in batches, flipping over when bubbles appear on the surface.

5 Serve the pancakes hot with the pineapple, diced watermelon, mascarpone and mint.
